“My Sons Defeated Me”

Q: Why is the last phase of the four phases of development characterized as an argument with the Creator?

A: The maturity of the soul and one’s desire are determined by one’s desire to rise above one’s current level. The still level is characterized by a lack of independence, the vegetative is more independent, the animate, more independent than the vegetative, and man is the last of these phases. Man actually consists of these four phases.

On the still level, man does not change and remains in the state he was born at. On the last level - the “man” in man - he wants to leave his receiving nature and fight the Creator, who has given him that nature. The Creator created the receiving nature, and man forces Him to change it.
